. tonight in "the war room," union busting, arrests, the coach brothers the president it seems michigan has a little something for everyone these days. [♪ theme music ♪] >>> welcome inside "the war room," i'm michael shure sitting in for jennifer granholm. tonight the fight rages on in michigan. the new front line for the battle for worker's rights in this country. the uaw is founded there, but republican lawmakers are now threatening to cripple it there. this is pure and simple union busting. these right to work laws have already had serious impacts across the country. wages for all workers, unionized and otherwise have decreased an average of $1,500 a year and workers are less likely to get health insurance or pensions. during the campaign any president voiced strong support the unions but as we know campaigning a very different from governing. things didn't look too promising this morning. so let's let the president speak for himself on this one. here he is in red ford michigan late this afternoon. >> obama: what we shouldn't be doing is taking away your rights
's take a quick review of some of the events that made headlines. in june, wisconsin unions were dealt a blow when efforts to recall anti-union governor scott walker failed. ally labors launched an extensive campaign but no match for the deep pockets of walker's donors. in september, chicago's teachers went on strike for the first time in 25 years. while they did get a pay raise they had to make concession like longer school days. and walmart organizers began to strike for holidays. and there was also michigan passing a right to work and making them the 24th state with such laws. the events of this year can leave anyone with mixed feelings and uncertainty about the future of organized labor, but that is looking at the glass half empty and in direct opposition of what labor has stood for in this country, hunkering down and getting the job down. uaw president bob king understands very well that the fight is far from over. >> we are going to continue until people know what this ideological agenda is. it is about suppression of women's rights, labor rights and immigrant rights and it is re
part to the strength of its labor unions and the large number of manufacturing workers living in flint. they took over a factory and they didn't leave until they reached a deal with management. workers occupied several general motor's plants. not for a day, a week but for month -- actually for longer than a month for 40-consecutive days and it worked. they got bargaining rights, and 40-hour workweek and a minimum wage. they had 100,000 people turned out in detroit to show their support for the striking workers in flint, 100,000 people. and yesterday 12,000 people turned out in lancing, michigan to protest against the state's new right to work law. it's a devastating blow to the heart of organized labor in this country, and perhaps no one knows more about than that that garl dean blankinship. >> my father called home one night, he was working on the second shift. he said we're on strike. it's a sitdown. i'll be home when it is over. and he was, 44 days later. let's not let the beatings that they took and everything else they did go to waste. >> thank you! >>
in the back. this is a state of course that was built by labor unions, has one of the highest percentages of union membership anywhere in the country. a state known for its union support and a state that really has been -- saves by labor unions particularly the autoworkers agreeing to significant cutbacks and benefits and salaries and everything to keep the auto industry afloat. as part of the auto bailout. of course, this is just the latest in this war on unions that we've seen. it started with scott walker in wisconsin. went on to ohio. and john kasich, we've seen a lot of it out of florida. we've seen a lot of it with rick scott. we've seen a lot of it of course in new jersey with chris christie. particularly in the midwest there's been this blatant war on unions. the latest is rick schneider, a guy who was just recently elected who says the last thing he wanted oh, no, no, no, he said this publicly, privately we heard this yesterday from steve cook, head of the michigan education association was a guest

this morning on "morning joe." >> actually, i have never said unions are bad for business, and i don't believe this is actually a union. if you look, i believe this is pro-worker. because the way i view it is workers now have freedom to choose. >> are you serious? are you serious, this is not anti-union? at its core, this undermines the ability for unions to organize so you can make many arguments you like to say it's not anti-union. >> all right. >> this does not deal with organizing at all. this does not deal with collective bargaining at all. >> erin, big picture, what does this mean for organized labor? >> what it means is they will be fueled and energized going into the 2014 midterm elections and i can't believe that we are talking about another election cycle just yet, but i interviewed the chair of the democratic governors association, the governor of vermont, over the weekend and he was telling me that this will be a very big deal going into all of the midwestern gubernatorial races in 2014. there are a lot of republicans who won in 2010 and obviously, because of this issue, they're re

the right to form and join a union. they still have the right to bargain, collectively. and what this law changes is forced union membership. i repeat, forced union membership. >> eliot: repeat it all you want no matter how many times you say it, it will still be flat-out wrong. federal law clearly prohibits unions from requiring membership. this has been made clear in a series of supreme court cases including 1963's national labor relations board v general motors. 195's pattern maker league v. national labors board. it states that workers are only required to pay a fee that covers collective bargaining and other actions from which they directly benefit and none of the unions political activities. just to make it clear mr. dobbs, they are not required to be a member of the union. mr. dobbs mighghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghghgh nobody knows disasters like comedians. >> new york, the high-tech resilient city. just don't get us wet. what the hell was that? >> that's from my upcoming benefit for victims of hurricane
not stopping republicans from approving right-to-work legislation that stopped you from forcing non-union workers to pay dues and could become law by next wednesday with my next guest's signature. does business ring a bell? this is the governor of michigan. >> we will get it done. it is important because it is about being pro worker, we have hard people, hard work people in union and they should be able to decide whether to join a union or not. it is not about employers or collective bargain. people should have the opportunity to say they want to belong or not. second, this can be good for economic development for more and better jobs coming to michigan. we have watched what has gone on in indiana with more companies look at indiana citing this as a fact they did it back in february and they can have thousands more jobs saved because they became a right-to-work state. >> the unions say you are presenting a row january -- a trojan horse and you are out to destroy the unions like scott walker in wisconsin, they say, about the dismantling of unions. >>guest: not at all. unions in michigan, t

don't like change. we feel comfortable in our lives and if you are in a union and doing well and look forward to your pension, why would you want that to change, you don't. that's why people come out and protest. the problem i have is not the freedom of speech, it is it the violent aspect that ends out where there is supposed to be tolerance and it often doesn't work that way. look at what happened to people who set up tents and in opposition to those who are protesting to have the union stay intact. >> two men with ski masks on cut the straps that tethered the tent to the ground and started to flip over the tables that had hot coffee on it and it was scary and people felt angry and they felt their personal space was invade their right to have their voice heard was trampled on. >> me and seven other men went in to get the people trapped in the back of the tent out. we made two attempts to get in there and we couldn't get halfway through the tent. it is it a large tent 30 by 60 feet. they were standing on the tent from the outside. you cont get in and push those people off. we couldn't
